Ex-fighter pilot, Logan Reid, is exactly the kind of man I despise. He’s a cocky jet jock, a former Navy Blue Angel, and full of all the arrogance that comes with being the best of the best.
I’m an ex-Zoomie, an Air Force tanker pilot. The rivalry between our sister services is nothing compared to that between fighter jocks and tanker pilots. We’re bitter rivals and I’m low-man (woman) on the totem pole.
The last thing I need is to spend six hours at thirty-five thousand feet locked in a cockpit with the cocky captain. But I have no choice. I’m his co-pilot, and we’re taking the CEO of Montague Enterprises, and his family, on a mini-vacation to the Grand Caymans.
We have three days on the ground before we fly back.
Three long days in paradise and he wants to spend them all with me.
I have a thing for fighter pilots.
It isn’t animosity, exactly, but rather a deep-seated dislike. They get all the glory while the rest of us sit at the butt end of their jokes and wither beneath their ridicule.
I hate fighter pilots. There, I said it. I hate the arrogant pricks with a passion.
But after one look into those magnetic eyes, and the devastating wink which follows, I’m thinking of throwing caution to the wind. What harm can come from some innocent flirting? Besides, it’s not as if my job is at risk.
I’m not prepared for the air to sizzle when he’s close.
I’m not ready for our explosive chemistry when he touches my skin.
I’m not equipped for the fallout when our three days come to an end.
And I never expected to fall in love.
But all good things come to an end.
I wasn’t prepared when I walked away.
And I wasn’t ready for what came next.
He’s determined to get what he wants.
And he’s refuses to let this end.
He’s fighting for a forever…with me.
But, I’m not ready for our beginning.
He’s arrogant enough to prove me wrong.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I have never read an Ellie Masters book before Cocky Captain and this one was fun.
I liked Angel. She was bold and strong. She had to be since she was working in a mans world. And she was not about to let her arrogant, and hot, captain smirk and charm his way into her pants. But Logan was not to be deterred.
I'm not going to lie, Logan's forwardness put me off a bit at the start. He was full of innuendo and snark. But the more he just let his persona go, and opened up as himself, the more he wore down Angel's defenses. Being in paradise didn't hurt either but there was a timer on their mini vacation fling.
I will say that there were a few times the pace slowed way down and things were drug out longer than they needed to be. But nevertheless, Logan and Angel's not so friends-to-lovers romance was full of humor, wit and heat. The dates alone had me in stitches. And that ending just brought everything full circle.
